Skin transplant is carried out under general anesthesia. The skin tissues to be used for transplant will be transported to the operating theatre and thawed before grafting onto the burns wounds. The surgeon will surgically remove the badly burnt skin before carrying out skin transplant. As the skin grafts can only provide temporary coverage over the burn wounds, each patient may require several repeated skin transplant procedures as part of their burns treatment.
Patients will be hospitalized for about three to six months and undergo rehabilitation. They also need extensive physiotherapy and occupational therapy sessions as part of their rehabilitation process.
